    Magic Guard: (Innate) This Pokemon is infused with a powerful psycho-electric energy that makes it immune to damage from Hail, Sandstorm, and damage from Leech Seed, Poisoning, and Burn. It can still attack itself in confusion, but will not absorb any damage from it. Additionally, the energy protects the Pokemon from its own reckless recoil attacks.
    Friend Guard (DW): (Innate) The Pokemon's body emits an aura of joy that reduces the Base Attack Power of all opponents' attacks in multiple battles by two (2).

    Abilities:
    Levitate: (Innate) This Pokemon naturally floats above the earth when released or easily takes flight, evading Ground moves like Earthquake, Bulldoze, and Magnitude. Other Ground moves can still hit.
    Technician: (Innate) This Pokemon is more skilled at performing weaker moves, causing any of their attacks that normally deal 6 or below base damage to have their base damage multiplied by 1.5. (e.g. Aerial Ace goes from 6 to 9, Mach Punch goes from 4 to 6, etc.) The Energy Cost for a one-hit or two-hit attack is increased by one (1).

    Mold Breaker (DW): (Innate) Whenever this Pokemon attacks, it emits an invisible, blindingly quick pulse preceding the attack that disables the opponents natural abilities (e.g. Levitators plummet towards the ground before Earthquake hits, Volt Absorb will not absorb electric attacks, Clear Body does not prevent stat-drops, etc.)

    Looks like I've already lost. Let's go anyway, Thistle!

    Begin by shielding yourself with a Protect, then strike with an Energy Ball. End with another Protect. At any time Staba chills during the Protect, fire an Energy Ball!

    Protect - Energy Ball - Protect
    Sub Energy Ball over Protect if Staba chills

    Sorry Flora. I needed this match to give Staba his one participation as a Rhydon so he can evolve.

    Might as well make them use as much energy on those Protects as we can. 4x Grass weakness and crappy SpD suck.

    Here we are down on some farm area, for an exciting battle between Flora and deadfox081! Deadfox begins the match by sending out his impressive Rhydon, Staba, while Flora counters with her Rebble, Thistle! I don't know how Flora will be able to counteract the behemoth known as Staba, but it sure will be fun to watch it happen!

    Staba begins the match by lunging forward with its horn, using it's impressive Drill Run! However, Thistle is quick to defend itself with a quick Protect, preventing any damage!

    Thistle starts the action up this time, throwing a hard Energy Ball to attack Staba's weak special defense! Staba looks like he's hurting hard from that one, but still manages to make the earth tremble with a hard quake! But what's this? Thistle avoided the attack with its' Levitate ability!

    Staba decides to return to its first action of the match and rushes toward Thistle again with a hard Drill Run! However, Thistle also returns to its' methods of the first action and protects against any damage!

    Action 1:
    Staba uses Drill Run for 24.75~25 damage and 5 energy
    Thistle uses Protect for 7 + (25/3) = 15.25~15 energy and receives 0 damage

    Action 2:
    Thistle uses Energy Ball for 24.75~25 damage and 6 energy
    Staba uses Earthquake for no damage due to Levitate and 6 energy

    Action 3:
    Staba uses Drill Run for 24.75~25 damage and 5 energy
    Thistle uses Protect for 7 + (25/3) = 15.25~15 energy and receives 0 damage

    That sure was an exciting and unexpected first round. This goes to show that anything can happen in the ASB arena! Thistle has successfully maneuvered itself around Staba's punishing blows to come ahead in this David and Goliath-esque match! But can Flora continue to put her Thistle in position to succeed or will Staba's girth indeed be something that cannot be ignored? Let's find out!

    Thistle starts off the action by using some sort of telekinetic power on Staba's brain, disabling drill run from being used for the foreseeable future. This should prove to be crucial to this battle! Meanwhile, Staba has had enough of the weaseling around and coats his tail with a layer of aqua punishment and strikes Thistle down hard!

    Thistle isn't one to take this laying down however, as it fires off a strong energy ball just as it did last round, striking Staba for massive damage! Staba tries to retaliate with a powerful drill run, but cannot due to Flora and Thistle's brilliant strategy to disable it earlier in the round!

    It seems as though both combatants decide to repeat their last actions as Thistle throws off another ball of energy for massive damage while Staba stubbornly tries to drill run again, but to no avail.

    It seems as though Flora and Thistle might actually pull this one out, although deadfox and Staba sure will give them a fight for it.

    Thanks DA lol. ^_^

    Okay, Thistle, let's wrap this up! Blast that rhino to hell with an Earth Power and finish up with the game-ending Energy Ball. Do that again if for some odd reason Staba doesn't faint.

    Well this sure is one for the ages, folks! Flora and Thistle have managed to take command of this match, despite the overwhelming advantage of Staba. Let's see how this one turns out!

    Thistle beings the action with a strong Earth Power, hitting Staba for a good chunk of damage. It seems as either deadfox has given up or that last attack knocked something loose because Staba goes for a powerful Earthquake, knowing that Thiste's Levitate will make that attack miss!

    And Thistle goes in for the kill! Thistle lets loose a greenish ball of energy right at its opponent. Staba is it hard and falls over, fainted. Thistle and Flora have won the match!

    Thanks for the battle deadfox081, thanks BiGGiE for reffing, and DA for tutoring! You guys aren't done yet though - you need to ref one more match so keep up the good work!

    PS, don't forget to edit the OP and change the title to Completed!

    Also, we get 2 TCs, not 1 so I fixed that. Still, nice job!

    Staba also doesn't get a DC, he already has all 5.

    GG Flora and thank you Biggie and DA. The whole point of this battle was to allow him to evolve so I suppose that end was reached.
